Toronto is one step closer to joining California in a shark fin ban.
On Friday, Toronto City Council voted unanimously to support it.
Rob Stewart, shark activist and proponent of the ban, spoke to the Council to explain why sharks need our help.
GreenHeroes hopes that such bans will change the industry and eventually stop the cruel hunt of this now endangered animal. You can help Rob in his fight to protect sharks by signing this petition and coming out to his fundraiser 100% Fin Free: An Evening For Sharks this Wednesday night.
